Time to remember our soldiers who fought and lost their lives for us . This photo was taken during a winter walk in the Notre Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery on Mt-Royal , Montreal , the sun was very low in the sky on this cold end of afternoon .
I took some photos of the different monuments and tombstones that stood through the snow ,i reached this area of the largest cemetery in Canada where the headstones are all the same , leaning to read i found out they were of soldiers each had a name inscribed in the stone . A single funeral wreath deposited on one of the stone in the first row was there to commemorate their death . Take time to remember our fallen heroes... We shall not forget .
In-camera filters allowed me to play with the image , soft focus is one of them thus creating this effect , added the text to match the red color of the wreath in Photoscape .
My contribution to the Rememberance Day theme .

What a wonderful shot with such a dream-like-effect, Carol!

Great details and a well shown view of the cemetery with nice contrasts against the BG.
Light is fantastic and addition of trees adds another piece of depth into the picture.
Well thought entry to Friday's theme!

Kind regards,

Hello Carol

Hi Carol,
Beautiful PP work to produce this soft presentation. The effect is suitable for the subject. A very interesting production with such blurred BG while a considerable depth can be noticed.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Carol,
Une belle dedicace pour le thème d'aujourd'hui,
de beaux détails et un arrière-plant flou bien présenté,
la neige donne un très bel effet à la composition....

Hi Carol.

You have created a masterpiece here, giving a heartfelt, moving feel to those lost for our safety.
The blurred backdrop of semetry pale stone crosses hits home the amount who gave their life, that will always be remembered. tfs

It is a very beautiful photo...the blur is very elegant. We get forget in time but there are persons that should be never forget...the flowers are " the light " of memory.
